Celebrate B.C. Water Week May 1-7, 2016

Posted Friday, April 29, 2016

Greater Vernon Water (GVW) is proud to support B.C. Water Week, a time to raise awareness of the value of our water and the need to protect, conserve, and support our water resources. From source to tap to drain and back, our water systems sustain us through the people and processes involved in getting clean water to us and returning it safely to the environment.

Greater Vernon citizens can get to know their drinking water better by taking the Virtual Tour of the Duteau Creek Water Treatment Plant at www.rdno.ca/watertreatment. Learn about where your water comes from, the required treatment and disinfection processes, and what GVW is doing to supply its customers with clean, safe and sustainable drinking water.

Show your love for BC’s water resources by pledging to support investment in water services. Each day we all rely on clean, safe water to drink and wash, and to flush waste from our homes and businesses. Take the pledge at www.valueofwater.ca before May 31, 2016 and you will be entered into a draw to win one of three Whistler weekend prize packages from the B.C. Water and Waste Association and Tourism Whistler!
